A certain type of tumor called gastrinoma can cause excess gastrin production.

This test measures levels of gastrin in the blood. Gastrin is a hormone that is produced by cells in the stomach. When a person eats, the stomach releases gastrin which in turn stimulates the production of gastric acid which helps to digest food. When this process is functioning normally, gastrin blood levels are low. A certain type of tumor called gastrinoma can cause excess gastrin production. The excess acid produced as a result can lead to the development of ulcers which are difficult to treat. Gastrin may also be elevated in cases of certain types of anemia which cause damage to the cells in the stomach that produce acid. A gastrin test is typically ordered when someone has recurrent ulcers which do not respond to treatment along with symptoms such as diarrhea and abdominal pain. It may also be ordered when someone is suspected of having pernicious anemia due to Vitamin B12 deficiency or a malabsorption disorder.

Lab tests FAQs

No. At Tripment Health, we focus on providing transparent healthcare services to uninsured or under-insured individuals. We’ve negotiated prices directly with lab test facilities to make diagnostic lab panels available to individuals who would rather pay directly than go through a private or government-sponsored insurance carrier.

No. By purchasing a blood panel, you will not be able to submit any claim, bill, or other request for reimbursement to any insurer, third-party payer, or Government health program. However, you can use your FSA or HSA card.

You will receive a payment confirmation email, then an additional email confirming your appointment details (type of test, time and location of appointment, and QR code). You will need to present your QR code to the testing facility in order to check in.

Once your test is complete, you will receive your results within 1-3 business days.

With a blood panel, you can establish your body’s baseline values for basic health measurements like cholesterol (total, triglycerides, HDL, LDL and total cholesterol/HDL ratio), glucose and hemoglobin A1c. Additionally, depending on the blood panel you choose, you will receive data on performance measurements such as Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, Magnesium, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, and/or Testosterone.

 

Your results are more than just numbers. Your results come with a personalized recommendation from one of our physicians.
